    Hagen Fluval 88g-co2 Disposable Cartridge

    I just picked up the Fluval 88g-co2 set-up. I put the thing together last night. So far it look likes its operating well. I can't wait to see what kind of growth I get with my plants. Anyone know where I can get the 88g-co2 canisters in bulk? I see a 3-pack for around 36 dollars but if I can get a 5 or 10 pack that would be better.

    I have that set up in a 38G tall. Time will judge if it does any good.

    I'm quite sure the 3 pack is the most you can get.

    It should work quite well in your 38 gal.
    Mine even did some good in my 70 gal tank as far as I could tell.
    They seem quite reliable although the canister won't last long. I've had one last about 2 weeks running 24/7.

    Do you have any additional feedback on this setup?
    Sounds very affordable, at least up front cost.

    Canadian pricing is usually quite a bit higher than in the U.S.
    I would expect you should be able to get that kit for under $50. in the States , but the small replacement CO2 cartridges are quite expensive and don't last very long.

    Those cartridges will kill your wallet over time.

    Replacement cartridge pricing is the usual drawback to these.
    Some of them - Some not all and I don't know if any still on the market - could use the BB gun or paint ball gun 88 gram cartridges with an adapter.
